Suzuki Roshi

‘When everything changes we seek for some permanent thing, we want everything to be permanent. Especially when we have something good or when we see something beautiful or we want it to be always in that way. But actually everything changes. So that is why we suffer. So if we seek for happiness – even though we seek for happiness, it is not possible to have it, because we are expecting something to be always constant when everything changes. So naturally we must have suffering.’ (From the archive)
